1. Re: are pubs and restaraunts open in november?

From my somewhat limited experience of Skye in the winter, I think you'll find places in Portree are mostly open. But in more remote areas of the island it may be different. As someone pointed out here the other day, the Sligachan Hotel is now closed for the winter, for example.

The only other advice I can offer is the obvious one: if you wake up on a fine morning, resist the temptation to have a lie in, and get out there to enjoy the limited hours of daylight while they last!

I visited Portree in Deepest Darkest December 2007 - and yes, most pubs are open, as well as many of the restaurants. The locals have to drink/eat-out somewhere, afterall!

I agree with the advice above regarding making the most of daylight, although bear in mind that "the crack of dawn" is likely to be 08.30-9.30, not 6-7am!

Make sure you head up the East coast from Portree, towards the Trotternish Peninsula - we went as the sun was rising and the colours and views were out of this world!

Enjoy your trip :)
